Pre Race Day Pasta

Kath's Kitchen / Saturday, May 26th, 2018

As a fan of carbohydrates and Italian cuisine, I am unsurprisingly a big believer in the power of pasta the day before event day. As I am running the Edinburgh half marathon tomorrow, I’ll later be cooking up a pasta storm in our little Airbnb with the boyfriend so we are 13.1 miles ready in the morning. Here’s a little recipe I think is perfect for Event Day Eve.

Ingredients | For one

  • 70g pasta
  • 7 tomatoes
  • 1/4 courgette
  • 1/2 pepper
  • 8 basil leaves
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 60g feta cheese


  1. Cube the courgette and pepper and fry them off in a pan with three of the basil leaves.
  2. Boil the pasta for 12 minutes while repeatedly stirring the veg.
  3. Once the pasta is cooked, add the veg to the pan and stir together, alongside three more basil leaves.
  4. Immediately add in 50g of the feta cheese and stir until mixed in.
  5. Serve the pasta, crumble the remaining feta on top and garnish with the rest of the basil.

Only a day to go and I’ll be running the Edinburgh Half Marathon before celebrating with more carbs and a beer or two. And if the locals have their way, a sip of some scotch!

Love, Kath
